DJI released the Mavic 3 back in November of 2021. This next iteration of their flagship drone brought with it a ton of upgrades users had been eagerly waiting for since its predecessor, the Mavic 2 had been released three years prior. We wrote a series of articles about this much-anticipated release, including two fantastic deep dives by my fellow APA writer György Palkó that you can find here and here.

Andrea Calo is an architectural photographer in Austin, Texas. Ever since I laid eyes on her work in the 2021 APALMANAC Project of the Year award submissions, I have loved Andrea’s photographs immensely.

Ever since I started my journey as an architectural photographer, I’ve had to face a big dilemma. I learned the basics of photography with Nikon cameras, so when I got to the point where I really needed to use tilt-shift lenses in my architectural photography work – I was left wanting.

Please remember that the answers here are not legal advice, but rather for educational purposes.

One beautiful thing I have always loved about architectural and interiors photography is the wide scope of clients and projects that fall under its umbrella. Last week on POTW, we looked at a project made for a one-of-a-kind rug shop. This week, we’ll look at a project made for a lighting design manufacturer.
